CAS Mix Up Card Challenge and Just Us Girls

Hello...
Did you have a good weekend? It was and still is, stinking hot here. I don't fare too well with heat as I've said, mostly because I can't sleep and that makes me good for nothing. Saturday I was near to tears... Anyway I decided to order one of those portable air cooling units that also offers some moist air and it arrived this morning. So far it's doing a good job!

Today I have a card that I'm entering at 


And


 


I used alcohol Ink on parts of my die cuts...  I cut 2 of both the flower and the cup and hearts, one in white cardstock and one with the AI and fit them together... Then stamped and embossed the sentiment...


They were then arranged on a BG that I ink blended through a stencil.. Maybe a little busy for me but the cup kind of looked lost on a white BG.

I also want to take the opportunity to wish my lovely blog friend Darnell a belated Happy Birthday... So sorry I missed the actual day... My brain is fried!

I hope you all have a great day!

Till soon

This is a beautiful card, Ros. The alcohol inking is a great idea and the cup and hearts are gorgeous. Your stenciled background is a wonderful.

Love the alcohol ink colored die cuts, Ros! They make for a very interesting china pattern! So pretty against the stenciled background! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Mix Up!

Gorgeous alcohol ink die cut coffee cup image, Ros. So glad you got a cooler to give you some relief from the heat. The heat did not stop your creativity! I really like the softly stenciled background. So pleased you played along with us at CAS Mix Up. Hugs...

Love the alcohol ink cup, hearts and flowers Ros. They really pop against the stenciled background. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! Happy to hear that you have some relief from your new air conditioner!! xx

One of the cutest coffee dies I've seen, and such a beautiful alcohol ink background you cut it from! Also love the stenciled background. Not too busy, still CAS. Lovely gold embossed sentiment. I feel for you with the heat. It's rare to get that hot here, but when it does I become almost non-functional. We go to warmer places on vacation, but thankfully our trailer has air conditioning. Take care, Ros!

Happy to that you are beating the heat with an air cooling unit, Ros! The heat here is so uncomfortable, but am staying inside with the air conditioning. Your card is so pretty with the alcohol inked die cuts! And, I love the stenciled background! Truly, a lovely card! Take care and stay cool!!

What a creative way to use alcohol inks Ros, and I love that beautiful stencilled background. I'm having a touch of envy at the thought of your air cooling unit! Surely it must cool down soon.

Sweltering here too - don't know why I'm drinking this cup of tea (except obvs a caffeine addict)..speaking of which.... I love this teacup design. The alcohol inks look fabulous, particularly inlaid on the hearts.

Greta said...

So sorry you're still having a heatwave, Ros! You should be here with me--warm, but not boiling hot & oh what fun we'd have! Love your artistic, unique card!

Your alcohol ink cup, hearts, and flowers are fantastic, Ros! The ombre look BG stenciling is a nice touch too! Hideko xx

Diane said...

Another beautiful card with those inks...WOW! I feel in love with this card when I saw it, for some reason I just love the coffee (or tea) cup dies and you have showcased it fabulously! Yes, hot here too but spend yesterday in flower gardens weeding until I couldn't take the heat anymore, so much to do out there but will just keep at it I guess!! My craft room is very hot but I have a ceiling fan I run 24/7, works great until I have to use glitter for SNS lol...then I roast as I have to turn it off!

Julia Aston said...

What a lovely background for your pretty cup, hearts and stem Ros! love the AI coloring - a great mix of colors! thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

Tracy said...
